New Human Rights Arbitration Rules: A Call By Experts

At a seminar in Stockholm, Maastrict University professor Jans Eijsbouts, former associate general counsel of the U.S Environmental Protection Agency Robert Thomson and former Baker McKenzie partner Claes Cronstedt presented a paper that proposed new arbitration rules for business-related human rights disputes.

The experts pointed out that victims of business-related human rights abuses have little or no access to justice, since courts have failed to meet their needs. In the paper, they argued that international arbitration has a great potential in resolving these disputes. The users of the system, according to the experts, will generally be multilateral business enterprises (MNEs) and the victims of human rights abuse linked to the MNEs.

The seminar was organized jointly by the SCC, ICC Sweden and the Swedish branch of the International Law Associations on 23 March 2017, and moderated by Professor Ove Bring. Former United Nations Legal Counsel Hans Corell kicked off the seminar with his keynote on human rights principles for businesses.
